in my book, they are too big, too corrupt, too destructive, too powerful. here in the u.s., there are basically five media companies that own almost all media. and in the uk, it's no different. rupert murdoch and his company simply had too much power. that's why we're seeing high ranking people, even prime ministers, even the head of scotland yard, tied up with this. they had so much power, they had to be kowtowed too. >> lisa bloom, we appreciate that. thank you very much. >> thank you. >>> this scandal is reaching deep now into rupert murdoch's inner circle, and you can be sure that the man at the top is feeling the pressure. murdoch has ads running in seven british papers through monday saying, quote, we are sorry for the phone hacking scandal at the "news of the world." the popular tabloid he just shut down. and here's what he said in his own words. the scandal is widening to another murdoch paper, "the sunday times," and now even the fbi is opening an investigation. the allegations, hacking the personal phones of public figures, and the not so public, from murder vi

. the big, brand new nbc "wall street journal" poll, and the revived gang of six which the white house is seizing on to give new life to the president's push for a big deficit reduction deal. the bipartisan group's proposal is still in outline form. they would reduce the deficit by 3.7 trillion over the next decade, cutting discretionary spending, defense spending, overhauling entitlement programs, rewriting the tax code by lowering rates, getting rid of deductions that overall would generate a trillion dollars in those deficit cuts. the plan got an enthusiastic reception from the white house and senate rank and file. watch. >> we now have a bipartisan group of senators who agree with that balanced approach. we have got the american people who agree with that balanced approach. >> 49 senators came to the room, and you know what, there were no fist fights, there were no -- there was no swearing. >> i think they're creating a vital center on what is the most important issue facing the country. >> it is a great start and it has provided great leadership. >>> but senate leaders mitch mccon
're going to have to push the big changes to deal with the deficit and debt, going to have to go down the road a bit and to the long term, maybe more than ten years? >> chris, i don't know about more than ten years, but certainly as you know, simpson boles, senator simpson and former chief of staff irskin boles, in their report they proposed making substantial cuts, raising revenues and across the board with all items of expansion. but they said in the near term, meaning the next year of so, we need to be very careful that we did not have the opposite effect by dampening down the struggling economy, obviously, as we saw today, which will decrease revenues and make the problem worse, not better. so in the short term, i agree with the bowles-simpson suggestion that we be very careful in the short term. there's no doubt, however, in the white house yesterday, or thursday -- yesterday -- there was a clear agreement that this was a serious, serious challenge that confronted us and it demanded at all of us try to come together and reach an agreement whereby we will certainly over the next 1
obama stead was time for both parties to eat our peace, make tough choices for a big budget deal. today he said without a deal there may not be enough money to send out social security checks. for many republicans in congress, opposing tax has become more than ideology. it's become relation. they're advocating their responsibility to co-govern. how are we ever going to get a deal if republican leaders more afraid of the tea party than it economic collapse to come? >>> also, pray away the gay. michele bachmann's husband says it's not trying to pray gay straight, but there's a different story. this may may michele bachmann more popular with her base, but what after everyone else? >>> plus, the murdoch scandal keeps getting bigger and bigger. gordon brown told the bbc murdoch used known criminals to get access to his personal information and it hit the "sunday times" of london and his company stock is sinking. how bad will this get? >>> jon stewart and fun, a lot of fun, actually, with the murdoch story. that's on the "sideshow" tonight. >>> finally, let me finish with a name synonymous wi
rchts good wepz, everybody. i'm contessa brewer covering the big news coast to coast. the big story right now the phone hacking scandal in great britain reaches the highest echelons of government. with prime minister david cameron facing cheers and jeers in an uncommon emergency session of the house of commons. >> i have an old fashioned view about innocent until proven guilty. >> prime minister david cameron addressing the house of commons. >> if it turns out andy coulson knew about the hacking at the news of the world he will not only have lied to me, but he would have lied to the police, to a select committee torque the press complaints commission, and of course, perjured himself in a court of law. >> former news of the world ed tore andy coulson was until january cameron's communications director. >> with 20/20 hindsight and all that has followed i would not have offered him the job and i expect that he wouldn't have taken it. >> coulson was arrested this month suspected of corruption in the u.s. voice mail hacking and police bribery scandal. >> you live and you learn and believ
. >> the proposal would have budget sate h savings of $500 million. -- $500 billion. also it calls for big changes to medicare and social security. >> i think at the end of the day, what the overwhelming majority of americans are saying, fix this. and if it takes a little compromise from both. >> but the is plan faces a harsh reality. tough procedural obstacles means the proposal won't be ready ahead of the august 2 debt ceiling deadline. and a key block of conservatives is already saying no way. >> we know it's going to hurt job creation. we know it's bad for small businesses. we're not going to go for this type of plan. >> with time running out, harry reid, who is still work on a fall back plan with mitch mcconnell says he's now waiting for a signal from house gop leaders. >> we have a plan to go forward over here, but until we hear from the house of representatives, we really are -- all of our work here would be for not. >> now there is also talk of folding elements of the gang of six plan into this so-called fallback plan being worked out between senators reid and senator mitch mcconnell. but

like to say as well just how sorry i am. >> my big question today, will one of the murdochs take the fall for the phone hacking scandal? of course you can reach me on facebook and twitter. to answer that question, let's bring in a reporter for "the washington post" style section. it's good to see you today, paul. what do you think? do you think that we're going to see either rupert or james take the fall? >> at this point barring any other revelations that's a big if i don't think so. the murdoch family controls about 40% of news corp. it has the board pretty much in its pocket. unlikely that they will be forced to resign as a result of this. in the absence of anything else happening. >> his board of directors whose responsibility has been to shareholders has been rather meek and silence on this scandal. now you have a director, tom perkins telling "the wall street journal" that rupert's a genius that and that the board thinks it needs him. how crucial is rupert to the future success of the company? >> well, rupert murdoch built news corp. from a single newspaper in australia in
and what doesn't get paid. another big story right now, a massive and dangerous heat wave is gripping much of the nation. here's how it looks and feels across the country. take a look at the red quarter. temperatures expected to reach 104 degrees in parts of texas today, in the southeast, temperatures are expected to reach the upper 90s and more than just uncomfortable, it's dangerous. heat has already claimed the life of at least one person in illinois and adding to that, the heat is causing drought conditions in the deep south to intensify. also this morning, hundreds of thousands still without power in the chicago area after strong thunderstorms rolled through. officials warn the power there might not be back on until saturday. let's go live to rob marciano outdoors this morning, silly rob, in atlanta's piedmont park. sun still not up, so it's still probably manageable there. but a lot of the south waking up this morning to 80 degrees overnight or higher. >> yeah. that's the thing. really hasn't cooled down much overnight, ali. even if you're out before the sun comes up you're still fee

to happen here with rupert murdoch and his son james tomorrow? >> well, that is certainly, that is the big question. and rupert murdoch and his son james, and rebekah brooks, who are appearing before the select committee have to be so careful, and so careful in fact, that rupert murdoch's biographers saying he is in rehearsals and being coached by aides and he is walking a fine line, because on one hand, he is under oath, and so like he and his son and rebekah brooks, they can't lie. if they do lie, it is a crime. so they have to be careful what they say. they can't mislead this group, but at the same time, they don't want to give too much away either, because this is such a reprehensible difficult and negative story that any facts on how to what extent the criminality of how far it went up the ladder at any of the companies as the facts come out, it could well, we could well see a drop from the bottom just out of news corporation. today, already, tamron, we saw a 5% jump in news corp stock in australia. so that the wheels of this amazing story just keep rolling along, and you mentioned in
in the senate, even as house republicans double down on symbolic spending cuts. the big breakthrough coming from the newly resurrected gang of six, a plan to reduce deficits by nearly $4 trillion in the coming decade. president obama championed the plan tuesday, and it emerged with the support of 49 senators on both sides of the aisle. house republicans, on the other hand, spent all day tuesday debating, and last night passing a cut, cap and balance, ccb proposal, that has little or no chance of surviving in the senate. senator chuck schumer described it today as dead on arrival and faces the promise of a veto if it were to reach the president, and despite digging in their heels against new ref gnaw and in favor of more spending cuts tea party walsh had a hard time explaining what cuts were in the house bill. >> why doesn't it name the cuts? >> it calls for $111 billion in cuts, chris. >> where? >> in the bill. >> you've criticized the president for not having a plan and you don't have one. >> all right. we're joined now by nbc's luke russert who covers capitol hill and nbc's mick viqueira at th
decade. the key thing here is this is the first so-called big idea with support from influential lawmakers on both sides of the aisle. last night, the republican-led house pass its preferred solution to solving the crisis known as the cut, cap, and balance act, the legislation cuts federal spending by $6 trillion and requires a constitutional balanced budget amendment in exchange for raising the debt ceiling but the bill is expected to die in the senate. the president's focus was on the plan forged by the so-called gang of six. >> it's time to get down to the business of actually solving this problem and i think we now are seeing the potential for a bipartisanship consensus around what that would take. >> reporter: the plan calls for an immediate deficit cut of $500 billion and mandates spending caps through 2015 and require congress on find specific cuts in medicare, defense spending, agricultural and energy. it would phase in the lower inflation measure for social security and scale back, but not eliminate, deductions for mortgage interest and charity and retirement counts and

? >> well, look, it's a compromise. you've got big cuts, and you've got extra revenue. so it is a compromise, and you're running out of time. that august 2nd deadline is very, very close and to get this plan how you've got to move quickly because you've got to legislate, pass, vote, implement. bill: can they do that in the time they have lift? >> frankly, bill, it's doubtful. you think you can write the tax code in a couple of days? the highly unlikely. but you can see how republicans would probably go for reducing tax rates. it's hard for me to see how democrats could go for reducing tax rates. bill: now, before we fish here, though, this cut, cap and balance thing that passed in the house, that was all the talk over the past week. would that survive a senate vote or, ultimately, is it vetoed by the white house? >> i've not heard anybody who has said it will pass in the senate. that's, essentially, a symbolic move, and it's dead as of now. that's why there's so such attention on this gang of six plan. bill: we shall see. stuart, we'll see you on fox business network, okay? stuart varney lea
this theater for however long it's been now really pumps it up. i never thought there was going to be a big deficit or debt reduction deal between the two parties because it's not in the interest of either party. i think the republicans were tactically terrible because they allowed obama to sort of portray himself or present himself as the one who is above the fray and who is interested in making the most cuts to the budget and to the debt going forward. and then making it appear, not appear but it's true, the republicans are walking away from a real deal to cut spending in this country. also, it gave obama and the democrats a chance to spotlight the republicans position on taxes. there's no way to get a handle on budget deficits over the long term debt without raising somebody's taxes. >> if this is raising the white flag, if this is going against the base, what is the difference between this and cutting a deal on tax loopholes and other things that would not impact their message overall. what makes this better? >> this is horrible. >> it's stupid. >> it's a nightmare. it's cynical. the se

unpublished research that indicates it might be simply big time peptide disorders. we don't know. i don't think it's as simple as trying to pass by the kentucky fried checken outlet without going in. this is a serious medical problem. we need to know more about it before we know how to treat it right. >> not that i disagree with you, governor but sometimes we reach for more complex reasons when the simpler reasons are in front of us. the tv remote control clicker and video games. this nation is filled with kids from 8 to 18 who never get off the couch. look at the advertisements for the real to life video games we have around us. that's all they play. they don't go out and play catch or run down the block to get milk. >> i think that's true. i didn't mean to say it had nothing to do with it but i think it's going to be a complex set of problems. it's going to defie easy political solutions. >> we'll move on to the budget. nine of ten states with the highest obesity led by mississippi, alabama and west virginia. they lead the nation in diabetes and high blood pressure. it's, you know, ob
hikers feared dead after reportedly getting caught in a dangerous current and pulled over a big waterfall at yosemite national park. and searchers are out looking for their bodies today wednesday, july 20th, 2011. captions paid for by nbc-universal television >> announcer: live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> and good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on a wednesday morning. i'm matt lauer. >> and i'm ann curry. as you see, it's 76 degrees already at 7:00 a.m. here in new york city. and new york is one of 32 states under a heat advisory warning today. >> i think you can see that shot from above, the haze that's hanging over the city. apparently a lot of the country is trapped inside what people are calling a heat dome. inside that dome temperatures in the 90s and 100s in areas that aren't used to getting that hot. now you throw humidity on top of that, and there is simply no way to escape. how long will all this last? we'll check in with al roker on that in just a moment. >>> then we're going to talk about the woman who can really pack a punch. we're talking about wendy murdoc
this is impacting the temperatures that we're seeing. >> well, it's a big ridge of high pressure that's very strong and doesn't want to move, and we might be looking at it for a long period of time. we talk a lot about the humidity and what role that plays. your body tries to cool off by using sweat and evaporation. that doesn't happen very easily if you've got a lot of moisture in the atmosphere. coming up in the next hour, it will feel like 109 in chicago, 108 in st. louis, and the real problem for people who don't have air conditioning is what happens at night. we go to 11:00 tonight. it will still feel like 101 in st. louis. that's crazy. 95 in chicago and 89 in cincinnati, and this isn't going to change very much. again, it's a big ridge of high pressure. we talked about this heat dome gradually descending air. it's very strong and when fronts try to move in, they are redirected off to the north, and we don't get very much cool air at all. we're going to watch this ridge gradually expand a little farther east in the coming days, so it's going to be getting warmer into the northeast. by friday
a deal, it starts to weaken the white house i guess. >> reporter: a big deal of deficit reduction obviously is feeling very elusive and chances of doing something like that seem to be very slim at this point. in terms of the debt ceiling, they are very much relying on a plan being worked out by senators reed and mcconnell, top democrat and republican in the senate, to move something forward so the senate can take a lead and the house can then follow suit maybe making some changes. i think right now that's the best hope. i do want to tell you looking at the president's schedule today, it's mighty bare. his normal presidential briefing and meetings with senior advisers but certainly there's a lot of room built in there for any sort of communication he needs to do with congress. >> right. there was talk they are working through the weekend so they are doing everything possible to come to an agreement. >> over night too. >> u.s. and libya hosting secret face to face talks since the libyan conflict began four months ago. the point of the weekend meeting was to send a clear message to m
're going with separation. >> and david, i believe i got to go with big spending cuts in revenues. makes no sense. >> i think the president, i said earlier, has leverage at this point because republicans depicted themselves as hostage-takers ready to blow things up and the public doesn't like this. they stood their ground. pat's right about that. the tea party people would be happy to see $100 billion cut out of the next budget which is in the bill that's up this week, even if that leads tos 700,000 lost jobs. happy top do safety inspections, environmental protection. this is what they want to do and stand by -- >> let's get back to reality. back to reality -- >> no. this is the reality, pat. >> david, what about -- >> david, hold on. let pat make his case. >> let me ask you this, chris. the republicans, say the mcconnell plan has a trillion or a trillion and a half in budget cuts in it. >> i don't think it does. >> in the house it passes. they send it to the president. he's going to veto it, shut down the government and puts if default? come on. >> the whole idea, mcconnell's, separate
picturesque morning for the last shuttle landing ever. obviously the heat is the big story, yesterday oppressive heat across the country, that has now arrived on the east coast. you will feel it this morning in the humidity levels that are much higher than yesterday. we have heat warnings in orange that spread from tulsa, chicago, pittsburgh, all of ohio and right up the busy i-95 corridor. this is the amount of moisture in the air, and that dew point is high. the heat index today going to be ridiculous. we had a chance for some near record highs. as advertised, two days in a row, it gets better by sunday. >> this is just impressive heat. it's not pleasant but it's impressive as you look at it from a distance. >>> time now for a little bit of sports and we begin with tiger woods firing his long-time caddie steve williams. this move ending a 12-year relationship where tiger won 72 times worldwide, 13 majors on his website lt gray said i want to express my deepest gratitude but i think it's time for a change. basically you can walk. woods did not say he would -- who he would replace wil
